I am an amateur percussionist and purchased these along with the Caz 20" ride and snare to lay down some jazzy-feel rhythm backing for home recording as well as embellishing some conga / latin based rhythms. These cymbals have met all my expectations - they have a really nice hand hammered finish with a lovely range of tones and response across the surface, excellent variation in 'chick' response depending on your stick attack and foot pedal. When open they have a good range of tones, a really nice bell and a decent shimmer to the sustain. When closed similarly the response are nice and consistent. They offer excellent response with stick, hot-rods and brushes - my personal favourite being hot-rods with which you can achieve a very wide variety of responses, all of which are nicely consistent which gives you great confidence when playing. They also offer a decent crash when open. They are great for setting a nice rhythm pattern for jazz/blues though I think these would also hold their own in a range of styles. I highly recommend these and am extremely pleased with them.
